Rhymes and Reasons

John Denver1970年1月1日

歌詞

So you speak to me of sadness and the coming of the winter

The fear that is within you now it seems to never end

The dreams that have escaped you

And the hopes that you've forgotten

You tell me that you need me now

You want to be my friend

And you wonder where we're going

Where's the rhyme and where is the reason

And if you cannot accept it is here we must begin

To seek the wisdom of the children

And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

For the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers

Their laughter and their loveliness could clear a cloudy day

Like the music of the mountains and the colors of the rainbow

They're a promise of the future and a blessing for today

Though the cities start to crumble and the towers fall around us

The sun is slowly fading and it's colder than the sea

It is written: "From the desert to the mountains they shall lead us

By the hand and by the heart they will comfort you and me

In their innocence and trusting they will teach us to be free "

For the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers

Their laughter and their loveliness could clear a cloudy day

And the song that I am singing is a prayer to nonbelievers:

"Come and stand beside us we can find a better way "
